    The best way to improve with colored pencils is to practice, practice, practice. Why not escape to the luxury of a Venetian Carnival while you're at it - all without having to leave the comfort of your home!

    Improve your skills of creating textures, textures and more textures with this detailed step by step tutorial. Learn how to draw perfect fuzzy feathers, smooth draping fabric and shiny beads in colored pencil.

    The fine details on the painted mask and the blurred pattern in the background will give you hours of relaxing, artistic fun while learning valuable colored pencil technique from a wonderfully talented young Italian artist, Jennifer Egista Milani.

    What you'll learn
    Shading Whites: Adding dimension to white objects can be a challenge - but Jennifer shows you how to create this life-like porcelain smooth mask.

    Faber-Castell Polychromos: Oil-based pencils work perfectly for blending many layers to achieve rich, dynamic colors. Despite the fact that cool blues dominate this final artwork, you'll be using a fairly large selection of pencils to achieve the richness and depth of the colors.

    Fabric: One of the most frequent challenges in realism - drawing fabric. Learn techniques to create realistic folds and shadows that look touchable. Jennifer shows you her exact process, step by step.

    Draw... Frame... Bask in your talent!
